The San Antonio Livestock Exposition established the Rural Youth Award 56 years ago to honor youth leaders across the State of Texas. Today, this award provides recognition for 4-H and FFA members who have shown outstanding leadership in their organization and community. Each organization conducts its own nomination and selection process and submits 20 honorees to represent their respective organization. Texas youth involved in 4-H and FFA may apply for this award through only one organization.
These awards have been confirmed for 2012 and the application is now open on-line for submissions. The application process will remain open until Friday, May 4, 2012. Those selected as 2012 honorees will be announced in time for them to be registered and confirmed to attend Texas 4-H Roundup in June.
The application process for 4-H is open to 4-H youth across Texas. Rules for application and selection for the SALE Rural Youth Awards for Texas 4-H are attached. Deadline for applying on-line: Friday, May 4, 2012 (No late entries accepted)
